Canadiens clip Red Wings

Max Pacioretty broke a third-period tie; Tomas Plekanec scored twice; and the Montreal Canadiens beat the Red Wings, 5-4, in Detroit Thursday night.

Pacioretty gave Montreal a 4-3 lead with a shot from the right circle that deflected off Detroit defenseman Niklas Kronwall for Pacioretty's 33d goal. The play appeared to be offside.

Kings 3, Penguins 2 - Drew Doughty scored early in the third period to give Los Angeles the lead for good, and the Kings beat Pittsburgh for their franchise-record-tying eighth straight road win.

Alec Martinez and Jeff Carter also scored for Los Angeles, and Martin Jones made 35 saves as the Kings matched the club road record set nearly 40 years ago.

Bruins 3, Blackhawks 0 - Patrice Bergeron scored two goals, and Boston beat defending champion Chicago in the first meeting between the teams in Boston since the deciding game of the Stanley Cup Finals.

Tuukka Rask stopped 28 shots in posting his NHL-leading seventh shutout. The Eastern Conference-leading Bruins rebounded from a 2-1 shootout loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Monday that ended Boston's 12-game winning streak.

Ryan out for season

The Ottawa Senators' Bobby Ryan will miss the rest of the season because of a sports hernia. He is scheduled for surgery Thursday in Montreal.

General manager Bryan Murray said the winger from Cherry Hill had been dealing with the injury since November. Ryan had hoped to have the operation after the season but aggravated the injury last weekend.

Ryan has a team-high 23 goals and 25 assists this season.
